We did not go inside. I thought the cost was not reasonable. But we heard the history of the rose tree by a tour guide, and that was very interesting. We happened to have parked right in front of the building where you could see...More

Seeing the largest rose bush/tree according to Guiness book of world records was pretty impressive. The smell alone is quite expansive. Spend the few bucks and take another walk thru time and enjoy the history in this little museum .

Wow-that tree is massive! We missed the blooming by about two weeks (April is pine time) but it’s still quite impressive. If you want to be married under the blooms, that would be amazing. Rooms and information are interesting Andrew informative. Definitely do this one.

You won't get the full effect unless you see this rose tree in full bloom. It was at the end of the blooming season when we were there and the smell of rose was very strong and there were many blooms still on the tree....More

As told to us on our visit. The young Mary missed her home so her parents sent her the rose tree as a comfort.
